December Newsletter

<<Salutation>> Merry Christmas!

Our prayer is that this newsletter finds you well and celebrating our Lord Jesus’ birth.  This Christmas season finds us in Minnesota.  Not what we were planning on, but God is providing and we are thankful for His care. We are so thankful for your prayers for Dan’s health and the doctors, thank you!

Dan had a Neurologist appointment on December 3, he is not sure why Dan’s blood clotted after being on blood thinners and referred us to a Hematologist.  That appointment is December 23.  They found a number in part of Dan’s blood that was off, so we’re hoping that appointment will tell us if something else needs to be done to prevent more clots.

We got to spend Thanksgiving with our families and are looking forward to celebrating Christmas with our families. Because Dan’s mom did not go to Texas this will be the first time in about 20 years that most of his family has been together for Christmas.

Dan continues to work with our leaders in Nigeria who are keeping things moving forward there.  We are very proud of our staff that has worked tirelessly in our absence. We have also been working on how we are going to expand ministry in Nigeria and searching out ways that we can move forward.

Our schedule forward this year…..

We are looking for some people that are interested in helping us develop a prayer team and coordinate some other teams with us.  If you are interested in being more involved with us in Nigeria please contact us and we will explore the options available right now.

We are scheduled to be in Long Beach, California for Converge Meetings at the end of January and in out Connecticut Churches in March so it looks like we will not have time to make it back to Nigeria before these trips. We are praying that we will have a health care plan in place before we need to make these trips.

Please pray for our staff as they continue a while longer in our absence.

As you end your year please consider an extra gift for GECHAAN. Just  a few ideas:

· Sponsorships for a TTP student's education is about $150, a full scholarship including start-up equipment is $600.

· We are planning on shipping a sea container of equipment to Nigeria in 2020 that will cost about $10,000. 

· A Days for Girls kit is about $10 each

· Could use support for the Mercy fund at the Hospital for Patients that can not afford health care costs.

Please also consider a monthly donation for our support. We are currently about $200 a month short and we have been notified there will be over a 20% Health Insurance increase next year. Click here to support us.
